Into The Pandaemonicon
Not as an accomplished release as Crowfathers' second release(See Crowfather/Sycamore split)this 4 track demo shows signs of a new artist crafting its sound. Be it the catchy start/stop chorus of "Scorched In Retributions Flames" or the pounding rhythm of "Descending Madness", Crowfather displays a refreshing dose of originality and a strong knowledge of song structure. Not as technical or fast as most black metal, but sometimes less is more. A very strong vocal delivery on these songs as well. As I stated earlier, newer material is stronger, but still an enjoyable listen.

Avoid at all costs!!
Never in my life have I bore witness to such atrocious drudgery passing itself off as 'art'
I am still baffled as to the reason why this "band" is on a label with such great artists. In every manner this release falls short. From the use of movie samples in every song. To the boorish nature of overused topics. to the poorly executed basic chord structures. I could go on but why waste any more of your time? This pitiful excuse for Black Metal should be flung out into the gutter and pissed upon by vagrants.
